Homeschool Concierge’s Nature Nerds Club….What is it?

 

Nature Nerds is a club (organized by Homeschool Concierge) for Homeschoolers who enjoy learning about nature and spending time in the great outdoors. Its sorta like a scout troop (only with no cookie or popcorn sales required, yay!!!) Membership in the club will include benefits like access to Online Workshops to earn 4 Seasonal Nature Nerd Patches - (for all school-age learners), in-field workshops opportunities to earn Jr Ranger (and other) badges/patches held at National and State Parks throughout California. All Nature Nerds will receive a cool Nature Nerds t-Shirt as well!


 

There will be 3 components to the Nature Nerds Club: 

  • IN-FIELD ADVENTURES: Priority registration to amazing in-person & location-specific workshops & camping opportunities (with the goal to earn Jr Ranger program badges and patches) to be held at National and State Parks throughout California. 

  • ONLINE ADVENTURES: Virtual Workshop sessions to earn 4 Seasonal Nature Nerd Patches - 4 & 6-week online Naturalist Ed Workshops for all school-age learners (Patches included). Also, 4 fun and educational Nature Art/Steam mini workshops offered online seasonally as well. Weekly Online Office hours (ask a naturalist anything you want!)

  • *SUBSCRIPTION BOXES: Seasonal Subscription Boxes- 4 fun and learning-filled boxes delivered to your door! Boxes will be stocked with Naturalist Ed, STEAM, and Nature Art seasonally themed goodies and curriculum to extend your learning at home!. (*Subscription boxes are optional and have an additional cost) 

 

Homeschool Concierge is happy to partner with Heather Drake (of High Country Excursions) who will serve as Nature Nerds’ Program Director. Heather is a Certified California Naturalist, Interpretive Ranger and trained Art Educator. Heather will be seeking out Regional Parent Leaders to head up the SoCal, Central and NorCal branches of Nature Nerds to help facilitate in-person workshops in their local regions and grow the club!  For further information on how to be a part of this club, please email nature_nerds@homeschoolconcierge.com and join our Facebook group.
